- #3954 - Friday, July 16, 2010 - Editor: Jerry KatzThe Nonduality Highlights - http://groups. yahoo.com/ group/NDhighligh tsIn this issue I'm going to try to get you to spend all your time and money doing nonduality stuff.Meetings in New York with Rupert Spira, July 16-18. Details here:
Don't forget to attend the Science and Nonduality Conference, October 20-25, in San Rafael, California. Get yourself into the company of over 500 nondual types. You never know who or what you'll come across. All kinds of people and topics. A really good energy there. Let me know if you're going so we can meet.
What is Nonduality?
Nonduality: there are not two things. (There is not one thing.)
~ ~ ~
Non-duality -- one without a second. We say without a second, because even the idea of one implies that there could be other than one. So when we say that without a second, it cancels that concept or belief that there could be anything other than one. Even that one is a concept to try and explain omnipotence, omnipresence; total presence, total power, total intelligence.
[Non-duality is] cognising-emptiness. Emptiness suffused with knowingness. Look out there in nature and you see that the entire manifestation, which is all appearance, is suffused with that innate intelligence -- the shape of a tree, the insect, the bird, the human forms, the galaxies, the patterns -- it all implies that it's suffused with an intelligence, a livingness or a vitality. ... I use the term intelligence energy, but even the term intelligence energy is not it. ... Intelligence energy is the activity of knowing. And that's what each and every appearance is here right now. That activity of knowing is happening. That is what you are and that's nothing that can be grasped with a concept or a thought.
From the book How to Attain Enlightenment: The Vision of Nonduality, by James Swartz
Non-dual reality means that there is only one principle operating in reality, not two or more, appearances to the contrary notwithstanding. It means that the subject and the objects are actually non-different, although they seem to be different.

From the book 2013: How to Profit from the Prophets in the Coming End of the World, by N. Nosirrah:
Oh, tra la, la, la
Life's singular; not two
Held in synch with cosmic glue.
Plus a paper clip or two,
